If you want to “try out” the new book What Britain Did to Nigeria, you can do so via the video kindly produced by reader Adekunle Shotubo. He produced this excellent video that previews the book’s cover, print quality, jacket, imagery, and text. Feel free to take a look at this preview of #WBDTN.

Five Great New Books about Colonial #Nigeria Coming Soon…


Books about Britain’s colonisation of Nigeria are rare. Then like buses – five of them come along at once! In the next 5 months, 5 different books about Nigeria’s colonial history under British rule will be released. Three of them tackle the same subject (Britain’s invasion of the Kingdom of Benin).

(1) “What Britain Did to Nigeria: A Short History of Conquest and Rule” by Max Siollun (@maxsiollun) (published by @HurstPublishers).

(2) “Formation: The Making of Nigeria, from Jihad to Amalgamation” by Feyi Fawehinmi and Fola Fagbule (@FolaFagbule and @DoubleEph) – published by Cassava Republic (@CassavaRepublic).

Then: three different books about the same incident: the British conquest of the ancient kingdom of Benin in 1897:

3) “The Conquest of Benin: the British Empire & the Kingdom of Bronze” by Paddy Docherty (@paddydocherty) – published by @HurstPublishers.

4) “Loot: Britain and the Benin Bronzes” by Barnaby Philips (@BarnabyPhillips) and published by Oneworld Publications – @OneworldNews.

5) “The Brutish Museums: The Benin Bronzes, Colonial Violence and Cultural Restitution”, by Dan Hicks (@profdanhicks), published by Pluto Press (@PlutoPress)
